1. Hotel G Yangon
The latest addition to the design-driven chain of hotels opened this September with 85 rooms. It offers a great location in the heart of the Yaw Min Gyi neighbourhood, popular with the city’s young expat crowd and close to bars, cafes and restaurants. It also boats its own all-day dining venue Babett which is already winning plaudits for its Mediterranean-inspired dishes.
2. Lotte Hotel Yangon
Situated close to Inya Lake in the north of the city, the hotel offers plenty of choice for business and leisure. There are over 340 rooms and suites, many with views of the lake, three restaurants, a bakery, a bar, plus a business centre, two pools (one inside) and a fitness centre.
3. Pan Pacific Yangon
One of the first big names to roll into town, this swanky 336- room hotel is perched atop the equally new Junction City Shopping Centre.
